Programme focuses on Anguilla

The new series of the BBC's 'An Island Parish' may focus on the eastern Caribbean island of Anguilla, but there's going to be a Manx flavour to it.

It's set to feature Marnie Wynn, née Emery, who is from the Isle of Man.

Her parents live in Onchan.

Marnie's husband, Stuart, works as a marine biologist on Anguilla and is set to be in the programme quite a bit.

The island is a British Overseas Territory, with a population of around 13,500 and an area of just 35 square miles, about a sixth the size of the Isle of Man.

The series starts on Monday night, on BBC2, at 8.30pm.
